Any possibility fax support is somehow intertwined? A long time ago, we used to have to start and end fax support daily. Now it, too, starts automatically. Right after I removed STRTCP from the startup program and added the autostart entry, we started getting load form type messages on the fax writer. End/start fax support clears it up. CHGWTR to say *NOMSG works. Is it possible that changing when TCP/IP starts caused this problem? Here's my theory: immediately after STRTCP in the startup program is the command that starts all printers (after checking the sysval QSTRPRTWTR). I'm thinking that starting TCP/IP took long enough that fax support initialized before the writers started. Now, there is no delay and the AS/400 tries to start the fax writer as a normal writer, thus causing problems when fax support fully starts. (I see a message in the FAXSND01P job that leads me to this conclusion: CPF3310 Writer FAXSND01P already started.) I've read on this list that a delay in QSTRUP is no longer needed (that was related to STRTCP). That's my answer, though, DLYJOB before starting printers. (I'm going to test that tonight anyway, but thought someone knew a better answer.) For reference, we are on V4R4.
